This program provides funds to support emergency planning for state, local, and Tribal juvenile justice residential facilities. Funds may be used to restore essential services and operations. Examples of how funds can be used for this program are located in the Emergency Planning for Juvenile Justice Residential Facilities guide.
For the purposes of this solicitation, emergency is defined as an incident—natural, technological, or manmade—that requires a response to protect life, property, or the environment. In general, funds may be used to cover costs associated with ensuring that the facility is prepared to maintain efficient continuation of operations to reduce risk to the facility, and to ensure the safety and well-being of youth and staff in juvenile justice residential facilities.
